Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Sandwiches 

4 to 5 pounds beef chuck roast or pork roast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, sliced
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce, divided

In large skillet, add oil.  Add roast to skillet, brown all sides over medium high heat.

Spray the inside of the slow cooker with cooking spray for easy clean up.  Place the roast in the slow cooker.  Arrange onion and pineapple over roast.

Pour 1 cup of barbecue sauce over top.  Cover with a lid.  Cook on low 6 to 8 hours.

Remove roast to a cutting board or plate.  Using 2 forks, shredded the roast.

Place shredded meat in a large bowl.  Using a slotted spoon, remove onions and pineapple from slow cooker, place it in the bowl with the meat.  Add 1 cup of liquid from the slow cooker.  Add 1/2 cup barbecue sauce.  Mix well.

Serve on buns.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.

I love to use my slow cooker all year long.  There is nothing like coming home to the delicious aroma of a homemade meal, ready and waiting for you.

Barbecue sandwiches are one of my favorite meals.  But finding a good one can be difficult.  They either have too much barbecue sauce mixed in with the meat, or it has a dollop of sauce spread on top of dried out meat.  With this recipe, the meat is tender and juicy, and each bite has the perfect amount of barbecue sauce.

On Tuesday, we had a fundraiser at Passion Radio. I made the Hawaiian BBQ sandwiches, and they were a big hit!

Our good friend Bill Scott came in to help with the fundraiser.  Bill is not only an incredible fundraiser, he is also an author.  His new book "The Day Satan Called" is due out in October.  This book is generating a lot of buzz in publishing circles.  Nightline is interested in interviewing Bill, and there may soon be a movie deal.  You can download a free chapter of the book at his Facebook page.

  1. I love BBQ too! Another great recipe Linda.

  2. Like this recipe must have a look around for a roast. Beef in the UK is generally so tough I seldom buy it. I have to get used to buying beef again when I am in France. Think I was too spoiled with Southern African meat which was always tender. Diane

  3. Yum! I'm a BBQ lover too, Linda! Yours looks delicious with all that good beef and onions and I've added it to my must make list. This is a perfect recipe for a slow cooker. Hope the fundraiser was very profitable!

  4. I am thawing a pork roast now to throw in the crockpot. I LOVE my crockpots---especially with the heat in TX.

  5. Wow! This looks so easy and delicious! I'll be trying this one out soon. Thank you!

  6. Love BBQ! Thanks for another great recipe.

  7. I smoked two pork butts last weekend, one for eating and one for freezing. I love that you can freeze it into 4 portion vacuum bags and then heat straight in the bag in just 5 minutes in boiling water. BBQ pork is one of the best meats as far as not losing quality when frozen and reheated.

    That comes in handy with big roasts like this.

  8. I so love using the slow cooker...this will have to be on my next to do list.

  9. Linda, this is the recipe I have searching for. Thank you for sharing; perfect. I l,ove using my slow cooker.
